What is Workday Learning?

Employees will use Workday Learning to explore and enroll in content. Course owners will use Workday Learning to upload and manage courses, track completion and engage with employees through learning campaigns. 

Workday Learning will be your “one-stop-shop” for employee development and compliance training and tracking.

Content creation will happen outside of Workday Learning through tools such as Camtasia, Articulate, PowerPoint, etc. Completed content will be uploaded or connected to the system. 

Workday Learning will integrate with:

  • ELMS-Canvas or Open Learning
  • LinkedIn Learning
  • CITI Program (Research compliance)
  • BioRAFT (Safety training)
